Hi,
by importing a word-file Tageditor 2007 is splitting the words. Example: the word "important" is written as I-M-P-ORT-A-NT ("-" are various tags)
Who can help me with this problem?

Could it be the way the styles are applied in Word?
Sometimes, files sent in Word are a real mess style-wise...

2. Eliminate these tags by copying all the text and pasting it into Notepad. Then copy everything in Notepad and paste it into a new Word document. Tell the customer what you have had to do, then translate as normal.
